"Photography"

The "shutter click" that started it all. From my very first image, the first clients and later on the expansion of the business.

Being able to capture a special event and turn it into an everlasting memory, that is what I strive to achieve. Capturing precious moments for those who are unable to do it themselves, all with a personal touch.

The early days

It all started when I was asked to take a few photos with someones camera during a go-kart race my brother was participating in. Not really knowing what I was doing, I kept shooting the whole weekend. Once the word spread of my results, more people were asking for photos of their drivers. An opportunity showed itself and I grabbed it with both hands. I bought my first camera and started "Nijsen Photography", specialising in go-kart racing.

Throughout the years that followed, I improved my skill and provided unique photos to my clients. More equipment was added to my collection and new doors were opened. Despite not being able to enter the tracks, I managed to take photos in such a way as if I was right next to the driver, in the middle of all the action.

Evolution

As I moved to the United States to chase my flying dream, I became interested in different types of photography. Capturing sunsets and the combination of aviation with black & white became my favourites.

Although it was a complete new type of photography, I was able to adapt known styles and techniques. Still trying to maintain that personal touch, I can only guess where it will take me.

Nijsen Photography has evolved to more than just photography. Posters, business cards, stickers, videos, calendars... Just a few of the possibilities.
